Interpretive Data

Assay Display Interpretive Data
Glucose Lvl Diabetes: ≥200 mg/dL plus symptoms
Potassium Lvl Please note: Patients with WBC >100 000 may have falsely elevated Potassium levels. For accurate Potassium quantification in these patients send serum separator tube (gold top) for subsequent determinations. Contact the Clinical Chemistry Laboratory if there are any questions.
